Binary Universe: the sky for some time

RASC members were notified of the most recent Journal issue. I downloaded the April edition.

The cover is graced by an astounding photograph by Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn during her first sojourn south of the equator. Stu McNair's image of aurora from the ARO within is lovely. Sheila Wiwchar's stunning photo of comet C/2016 R2 (PAN-STARRS) near the Pleaides adorns the back cover.

The featured essay is on the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory. I look forward to reading that.

My software column Binary Universe is entitled The Sky for the Next 580 Months. I reviewed the Android app Sky Events from Axl Softs which lists upcoming astronomical events including meteor showers and solar eclipses. I tested free advertisement-supported version 1.5.
